Thor's Hammer by sobie182 Thor's Hammer by sobie182
February 2009

Drawing for a tattoo for my friend. Thor's Hammer with Nordic symbols and runes. The three symbols on the top (on the forehead), from left to right, mean luck, love, and strength. The five runes at the very bottom spell out his wife's name (Alana).
Here is a link to the finished tattoo on his forearm (definitely not tattooed by me!)

hey my buddy asked me to use the mustache design from this, but I gotta say I was totally all around influenced by your piece. Great stuff! You can see his tattoo design here: [link]

Sorry I haven't been on here in a very long time and just saw this comment. Just wanted to say thank you so much! How flattering that you used my piece for inspiration. I think yours is incredible - so much stronger and I especially love the face. I better not show my friend who got the tattoo, he'll wish he had gotten your piece tattooed on him instead :)

by why put odin, the ravens and sleipnir on the hammer ?
very nice, just thinking two goats could have been more related

actually there is a picture the same as this one but instead of the ravens there are goats and instead of the sleipnir there's a random round thing .. and on the head is written "thor" in futhark

The friend I drew the tattoo for actually requested those changes. He had given me the picture (probably the same one you were referencing, Zeus) and asked for the ravens, sleipnir, and gave me the runes he wanted. I personally don't know about anything Nordic, and I'm not sure of his reasons for the changes he wanted.
